Archive for Testimonies of Ex-Musilms
On April 23rd, Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Nonie Darwish and Simon Deng spoke at Temple University for an Islamic Apartheid Conference and the Muslims and “Socialist” came out in full force trying to not only oppose and protest the conference,,, but to shut it down by getting belligerent during the speakers speeches. Witness the intimidation and disruption tactics employed to try to stop this conference in the videos below. I especially liked Nonie Darwish’s speech.
Robert Spencer was the first speaker; listened to by most, although there was the to-be-expect disruption by a few (this happens in a couple of moments during Spencer’s opening remarks) and handled by the speaker (security seemed to just stand by and watch). He was followed by Pamela Geller.
In spite of a couple of hecklers, Ms Geller confidently waited them out and then spoke of her organization, dedicated to the individual human rights and to women’s rights. The next speaker was Nonie Darwish.
Ms Darwish spoke of her upbringing as a Muslim In Egypt, of leaving Islam and the Islamic Apartheid against Former Muslim, Christians and Jews. The next speaker: Simon Deng.
Simon Deng was enslaved at the age of 9 by Muslims in the Sudan; a horrible practice that continues throughout the Muslim world today. This was a powerful presentation….
Next is the Q and A
Part 1 of the Q and A. One heckler remained in the crowd ( ignored by security) and then many of the ‘questions’ were instead statements of propaganda. All handled superbly by the spaekers.
Part 2- Q and A continues with a concerned young man asking Robert Spencer about what he has read in the Quran. He doesn’t like the violence in the Quran. The loud mouth heckler shouts out a few times, but the Q and A continues in spite of him. Part 2 is intense and quite interesting .
Part 3 ( end of the Q and A) The students get more argumentative. Their minds are closed but the speakers, Spencer, Geller, Darwish and Deng are politely confident as they continue to address The Islamic Apartheid ….a truth these students refused to listen to.
And here is a video of the protest that happened outside at Temple University.
FROM THE VIDEO DESCRIPTION: “On April 23rd Temple University Students for Intellectual Freedom hosted a gathering of racist, Islamophobic bigots. The event was titled the “Islamic Apartheid Conference” and featured Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, among others.
Occupy Temple, the International Socialist Organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, Occupy Philadelphia and other community and student organizations held a protest to condemn their outrageous hate speech.
In the wake of the recent hate crime/murder of Shaima Alawadi (32 year-old Iraqi-Muslim, and mother of 5 children), the wrongful imprisonment of Tarek Mehanna, the murder of Trayvon Martin, and the constant demonization, criminalization, and crimes against Black, Latino, and other oppressed communities throughout the country, among unending wars against Arab and Muslim countries, we must organize a multi-racial fightback against these racist hatemongers. “
WHAT RACE IS ISLAM?
(SOURCE: EUROPENEWS) “We are in danger. We are afraid of Islamists!”
Interview with the former Muslims Maher al-Gohary (60) and his daughter Dina (17) who escaped from Egypt because of death penalty for conversion to Christianity.
The very well known case from European media is not looking like coming to an expected happy end. Those two people have been facing difficulties for years, not only in Egypt where death penalty is sentenced for conversion from Islam to Christianity, but also in Europe, where they were subjected to the acts of discrimination by the Muslim community.
Despite of the case being frequently commented in the international media, i.e.: BBC, Fox News, and many newspapers, not so much has happened so far to change the situation. Ignorance and lack of responsibility for lives of this two innocent people are scaring. Why haven’t European governments and immigration offices done what it takes to protect and ensure security for them? Where they can go next after Egypt, Syria, Germany, France and Sweden? Will the Swedish authority be the one to help and listen to them? Who will take responsibility to save those two?
Q: Can you tell us what happened to you in passing months when you decided to left Egypt, and how your lives looks like now?
Maher: We have the bad memories since 3,5 years before we got away from Egypt. Somebody tried to killed me, somebody tried to throw acid on my daughter Diner. There are many fatwas on us, saying that anyone who would ever see Maher al-Gohary, must kill him. The Police follow us from place to place, because the Islamists want to kill us.
When the revolution begun we got out to Syria, because all the embassies in Egypt were closed after revolution. When we arrived to Syria, we went to the United Nations because we had to find a safe place. Where the revolution begun we went to the embassy of Vatican and we asked for visa to France. The meeting there went well. They knew me and my daughter. They know our case and gave us the French visa.
After some days being in France we found out that there are many Islamic people on the streets. Dina was scarred. Church could not help us because of the many Muslims living in France. We decided to take a train to Germany. We found out that there also many Turkish Muslims are living. We were looking for any place with not so many Muslims, we decided to the take train to Sweden. Now we don’t have any place to stay. My daughter needs go to school but she cannot do it here.
We need to live a normal and peaceful life. The government did not promise us to let us stay in Sweden, they said that they will talk with French and maybe we will come back to France again. Why these people don’t remember what we had suffered in our country? All the World knows about us, they wrote about us in newspapers, BBC, Fox News. In Germany and Holland there was made a big movie about us. We are in danger. We are afraid of Islamists. We suffer because of discrimination. We hope that one day me and my daughter Dina will live in peace and safety.’
Q: How do you feel now?
Dina: I would like to have a normal live as any girl in my age. I would like go to school and to church. I would like to come back home without being afraid that somebody would kill me.
Q: Do you remember the last time when you could meet and play with your friends, other kids?
Dina: I haven’t had a normal live in Egypt. The Christian girls were afraid that Muslim girls can kill us.
Q: Did Swedish authorities promise to help you?
M: No, but now we want mercy. I believe in Christ. We were discriminated a lot, they want push us back. We know that Saudi Arabia gives a lot’s of money to make trouble for us. Jussuf Al-Badri said during the TV program: ‘anyone who meet Maher al-Gohary must kill him’.
What can I do? What can I say? The European Union knows about us, why they don’t accept us? In immigration offices they say that maybe we need to return to France, but the church did not help us in France. They said that they can’t help us and we need to leave France because there are millions of Muslims living there. Our church was afraid. Even in Egypt the Church was afraid because maybe somebody could plant a bomb because somebody had helped us. We left France and went to Germany and we found the same discrimination. We made press conferences in Germany and we were talking about everything.
German police took our passports and warned us that we should do not make any programs because if any Muslims know about us maybe they will try to kill us. I decided to go with my daughter to Sweden. When we arrived here, looking for peace and security. We want to have a permission to stay here. Why did I leave France, why did I leave Germany? Because we were in danger there! All that we want from Swedish government is to have mercy on us, and we are getting tired.
Q: Why it is so difficult for the Muslim community to accept the case of leaving Islam?
M: Muslims can be nice where they are few, but when they are many they want to force people to become the Muslims. When they are few they do not have the power, but when they grow, they can be dangerous. Mohammed said that they can kill anybody.
Q: Can you tell what does Islam mean for you?
M: We did not believe that Islam is only true God and religion and there is no other God outside this religion. If you convert from Christianity to Islam there are no problems. They give you a job and an apartment. If you change from Islam to Christianity you have to die, you need to leave your house, your flat, your money, somebody will try to kill you. Islam is the religion of blood. We found Christianity the religion of love. Islam is very hard religion. The problem is that the Muslim do not accept any other religion. There are the rules written in Quran. If you are not a Muslim, you need to be die. Muslims want all people to become the Muslims. Everywhere where Muslims are, there are also troubles. They do not accept different people.
