Indeed, BlackEagle - exactly like that!
Today, the last day of Ramadan, is Al Qud's day. As with all Islamic holidays, this one comes earlier each year. But even more than that, it seems the Muslims themselves cannot keep track of when this holiday really falls. I have checked dozens of Islamic sites, and virtually none of them agree on what date it falls this year! But whenever it is, this is a day set aside by Muslims to engender Palestinian solidarity against the Jewish People in general and Zionists in particular.
Imam Khomeini once said "If each Muslim were to pour out
(just) one bucket of water, there would be a flood to wash away Zionism."
I would modify that just a bit, and say “If each Muslim were to hold his head in a bucket of water for 30 minutes, there would be an end to the hatred and murder of Israeli's, Jews, and most other victims of terror in this world.”
But that is not politically correct – even though it is tragically absolutely true. Islam was formed in violence, spread in violence, and maintains it's hold over people and nations through violence. The Koran has plain directives to all Muslims that they must convert, enslave, or kill all people of all other beliefs.
But the President of the United States – more than one of them, actually, has made the statement that Islam is a “religion of peace”. Whether those presidents were ignorant of the truth, or whether they hoped that reality could be changed by their pronouncements, I do not know. But I do know this: They are tragically wrong.
For the real truth about Islam, do not listen to a Muslim living in a country that is predominantly some other faith, where they are trying to be accepted. Instead, listen to the words of the Muslims that live in Islamic countries. They have no reason to white-wash their faith, and will instead speak the truth about it, like Khomeini did above, or Nasrallah below:
"Israel is our enemy. This is an aggressive, illegal, illegitimate entity that has no future in our land. Its destiny is manifested in our motto – Death to Israel”
