The Koran says our battle is with the Jews...
Upon reading the transcript of an interview with the head of Radio Islam in Sweden for one moment I felt as if I was part of an episode of 'Back to the Future', where I had travelled back to the pre-WWII era, when anti-Semitism flourished.
The following is an excerpt from the interview and shows the true face of Islam. It is shocking and it reads like Nazi propaganda, revealing the dark, hideous spirit that inspired Islam. For the full interview, visit http://www.memritv.org/Transcript.asp?P1=875
Host: "Don't you distinguish between Jews and Zionists?"
Rami: "The Jew is proud of being a Jew. He has called his country 'the Jewish State.' Why don't we call things by their real names? I have interviewed Jews who said that 99% of the Jews support Israel and act to help it."
Host: "True, but the basic question I'd like you to answer is whether, in your opinion, there is no difference between Zionism as an ideological political movement and Judaism as a religion."
Rami: "I believe that the Jew is more dangerous than the Zionist. Why? Because the so-called settlers..."
Host: "You attack the Jews as Jews. But we know that historically, Jews lived in Islamic countries. In fact, if we compare the history of the Jews in Arab countries and in Western countries, we will discover a great discrepancy. Whereas Judaism is thousands of years old, Zionism is only a few centuries old."
Rami: "Do you allow me to respond?"
Host: "Go ahead."
Rami: "I do not agree with you, because... Today, the so-called settlers, who are now fighting Sharon, oppose Zionism even though they are Jewish. They even refuse to serve in the Israeli army. All the Jewish rabbinical schools belong to this Jewish stream, which does not even recognize Israel, because it wants Greater Israel, from the Nile to the Euphrates. They consider the Zionists to be infidels. The Orthodox Jews consider the Zionists to be infidels who violated the religion..."
Host: "Because they rebelled against the divine will."
Rami: "Precisely. But what do they want? These settlers, who oppose the withdrawal from Gaza, want [a state] from the Nile to the Euphrates..."
Host: "Who wants that?"
Rami: "The Jew, the Jews... the Orthodox Jews. These so-called extremist Jews do not recognize Zionism. There can be no Zionism without Judaism."
Host: "True, but there can be Judaism without Zionism. What you said in the beginning is only half the truth. Zionism is a political ideological movement among the Jews. Therefore, there is no Zionism without Judaism, but the opposite is true as well."
Rami: "I am a Muslim. I am not a Communist or a Marxist. I oppose both Marxism and Communism. This analysis of yours is a Marxist-Communist analysis, because the Koran says that our battle is with the Jews. Zionism is not mentioned in the Koran. Our war is against the Jews.
"We should not turn tactics into strategy. Yasser Arafat's problem was that he tried to use tactics, and he repeated these tactics and these lies so many times, until they turned into strategy. Just like the Jews say clearly that they want their state to be Jewish, not Zionist, we want an Islamic state on Palestinian land, because it is our land, and the land of the Christians as well...
"By the way, Radio Islam in Sweden... During the trial against Radio Islam, the Swedish church stood by my side and supported me and Radio Islam, arousing the wrath of the Jews in Sweden. We should...
"The definition of who is a Jew is their problem. The Jews will not be the ones to define Islam for us, and say who are Muslims and who are Islamists. At most, we can say that the difference between Zionism and Judaism is like the difference between a carpenter and his hammer, or between Islam and the Islamists. What is Islam without a movement for its realization? The Jews... Zionism seeks to realize Judaism
