CAIR’s Hassan Shibly is the ‘Boy Terrorist’ because the UAE declared CAIR a terrorist organization and a Federal Judge declared CAIR an un-indicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding trial in US History.
This video exposes the duplicity of Hassan Shibly, CAIR, and most importantly the true insidious nature of Islamic apostasy laws.
Hassan Shibly after hearing the gut wrenching story of how a young Dr. Masood was nearly killed by his parents and neighbors for converting from Islam to Christianity was handed a softball question by Mr. Kornman.
Hassan Shibly had the opportunity to condemn the Islamic apostasy laws that have brought much pain and suffering to millions over the last 1400 years. Instead, Mr. Shibly chose to imply that Dr. Masood was a liar and confirmed this by running away from Dr. Masood rather than engaging him in honest dialogue for the world to see.
I have heard Hassan Shibly and many other followers of Islam tell Western audiences that Islam is a religion of peace because the Qur’an says there is no compulsion in religion.
In an Egyptian TV interview Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of the most respected leaders in Sunni Islam said, ” If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today. Islam would have ended since the death of the prophet, peace be upon him. Opposing apostasy is what kept Islam to this day.”
It is these very same Islamic apostasy laws that hold Islam together through fear.
If the apostate is not killed for his apostasy, it is likely his/her family will disown them severing every familial and business lifeline the individual has ever known inside their community.
The fear of death for apostasy is a very strong motivator to keep the the followers of Islam in line to this day.
It is time for people of conscience to publicly condemn Islamic apostasy laws.
Codified Islamic texts, Umdat al-Salik aka Reliance Of The Traveller page 595 has Ijma or Consensus among Islamic scholars states, “Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief (kufr) and the worst…When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.”
o8.4 Reliance of the Traveller, p. 596 states, “There is no indemnity for killing an apostate, or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die.”
o8.4 says that there is no punishment for any Muslim who kills an apostate because that is killing someone who deserves to die.
If a Muslim leaves Islam it falls on that apostates family to kill the offender. If the family does not uphold their honor and kill the apostate then the responsibility falls on the immediate family, cousins, and then the community at large.
According to Islamic law there is no time limit for the execution order to be carried out, by anyone.
Now that you know the context of Islamic Apostasy Laws it becomes easier to understand why Hassan Shibly behaved as he did in this video.
Hassan Shibly and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) understand the severity and importance of Islamic apostasy laws, causing Mr. Shibly to ‘run away’ from talking with Dr. Masood on camera.
Islamic apostasy laws are Not compatible with our man made laws.
This is why Hassan Shibly’s gut reaction was to deny Dr. Masood’s story and requiring “verification”. Yet with Dr. Masood being no less than 20 feet from where this video was filmed, Mr. Shibly’s only safe play was to run away rather than confront and defend Islamic apostasy laws by engaging one on one with a man who nearly lost his life because of those same Islamic apostasy laws.
When I called Shibly a liar to his face he had two options. Most men would turn around and deny the charge of being called a liar with righteous indignation defending his honor, or run away.
Hassan Shibly, in this video, is the perfect object lesson of how a Muslim leader acts when being put in the position of having to defend his own words and the draconian Islamic apostasy laws.
Dr. Masood is 100% right when he says at 2:54 that the true nature of Islamic apostasy laws, “…paints not a good picture in the Western mind.”
It is time for individuals living in the West to condemn Islamic Apostasy Laws. More importantly, it is time for devout Muslims of conscience to render these archaic and horrific apostasy laws to the dustbin of history where they belong.
This topic is so important it doesn’t matter if you are liberal, conservative, communist, marxist, or even an anarchist – Islamic apostasy laws apply to each equally.
I hate to tell all you non-Muslims out there this but – Islamic Law is applicable to you as well especially when it comes to Islamic blasphemy laws.
God Bless America and God Bless Our Troops.
