Some words on ‘heated Benedict’s reagent’ by Benedict

1. Me.

“It was definitely his remarks as well as the Byzentine emperor’s. I think he knows that Muslims can not ever touch him as Muslims can not protect their third holy mosque…”

2. Diaa Rashwan, an analyst in Cairo, Egypt, who studies Islamic militancy.

“The declarations from the pope are more dangerous than the cartoons, because they come from the most important Christian authority in the world — the cartoons just came from an artist.”

3. Pope Gets it Wrong on Islam by Prof. Juan Cole (Read more in http://www.juancole.com/2006/09/pope-gets-it-wrong-on-islam-pope.html)

“He (Pope Benedict) notes that the text he discusses, a polemic against Islam by a Byzantine emperor, cites Qur’an 2:256: “There is no compulsion in religion.” Benedict maintains that this is an early verse, when Muhammad was without power.

His allegation is incorrect. Surah 2 is a Medinan surah revealed when Muhammad was already established as the leader of the city of Yathrib (later known as Medina or “the city” of the Prophet). The pope imagines that a young Muhammad in Mecca before 622 (lacking power) permitted freedom of conscience, but later in life ordered that his religion be spread by the sword. But since Surah 2 is in fact from the Medina period when Muhammad was in power, that theory does not hold water.”

  1. Ia sungguh subjektif SF. Macam nak kahwin, dah sedia? Kalau begitu ideal, sampai bila pun takkan bersedia.

    Sungguhpun demikian, persediaan itu adalah perintah Tuhan sebagaimana dalam al-Anfal. Malah Allah membuat perbandingan kekuatan umat dua hingga sepuluh ganda berbanding kekuatan musuh. Nisbah2 matematik dalam al-Anfal cukup menarik, ada disebutkan 1000 dengan 2000, juga 100 dengan 1000.

    Kekuatan tersebut pula amat subjektif sifatnya, bergantung kepada beberapa faktor. Macam kisah lelaki yang menang bertarung lawan syaitan untuk tebang pokok yang telah menjadi bahan sembahan. Syaitan yang tewas itu bagaimanapun bagi kata dua dengan janji 2 dirham ada akan diletakkan di bawah bantal pada setiap hari.

    Maka lelaki tersebut bersetuju tidak jadi tebang pokok tapi lebih rela makan suap. Sampai pada hari keempat, tiada lagi wang seperti yang dijanjikan. Sang lelaki marah, tak puas hati, syaitan sudah mungkir janji. “Aku mahu tebang pokok,” katanya pasti.

    Syaitan cuba menahan lelaki tersebut lalu terjadilah pergelutan. Lelaki yang pada awalnya menang, kini tewas. Syaitan menang. Sebabnya niat bukan untuk tentang syirik dan khurafat tapi marahkan syaitan sebab engkar memberi suap.
