Blasphemy in Shariah law means insulting, denigrating or defiling anything about the Koran or Muhammad. Depending on the the type of Shariah law, the penalty can be everything from strong social condemnation, 100 lashes, long-term imprisonment or death by beheading. Muslim countries or communities, in fact all muslims in the world Ummah (OIC) have the right to establish Sharia blasphemy laws according to OIC's Cairo declaration. According to totalitarian islam, all non-believers will, in the end, either convert to islam or burn in Hell with the apostates (see Qur’an 9:, 5, 29, 123; 2: 191-193, 216, 3: 56). Allah told Muhammad (a) “O believers take not Jews and Christians as friends since they will not fail to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely (Sura 3, aya 118); (b) O Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites. Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell (9:73); (c) “As to those who reject the faith [islam], I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the hereafter." (3:56).
July 26, 2012 Klevius wrote that Mitt Romney is muslim born apostate (?!) "president" Mr X Hussain Obama's 100% guarantee for re-"election".After islamofascist media takeover every islam/Sharia critical presidential candidate has effectively been removed and now there's only one left - and he's a muslim born apostate(?) who supports OIC and its sharia based islamofascism against Human Rights! Good job Uncle Sam! Four more years of US taxpayers' support for islamofascism worldwide and a continuing eroding of what used to be at the heart of US, namely freedom from totalitarianism and fascism.
OIC and Al-Qaeda share essentially the same goalsHow naive can people possibly be in face of the disgusting islam propaganda. Comments on Swedish Aftonbladet's Madonna article "muslim Obama" reveals a bottomless ignorance and a scary belief that "islam is just a personal religion among other religions".
Shireen K. Burki: Remember: Al Qaeda's ultimate goal is to restore the caliphate (the Islamic form of government that would preside over the community of believers) and expand Dar al Islam ("Abode of Islam"). Reaching it requires a long war against all – Muslim and non-Muslim – who don't share its extremist Wahhabi worldview.
Klevius: Saudi based OIC's ultimate goal (according to its Fuhrer Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu) is to restore the caliphate (the Islamic form of government that would preside over the community of believers) and expand Dar al Islam ("Abode of Islam"). Reaching it requires a long war against Human Rights which don't share its extremist Sharia worldview.
The problem with Obama's muslimhood or apostasy isn't his personal belief but islam - and everyone tries to avoid the questionApostasy (leaving islam) is considered the worst crime in islam - no matter if it's punishable or not in a particular Sharia context or just socially (or by mobsters/jihadists doing the dirty job for the "peaceful" muslims)!
Don't let yourself be cheated by "birther" or "death penalty or not" babblers. What is at the core is islam's incompatibility with Human Rights and the US Constitution.
You're quite ready for the madhouse if you stubbornly continue trying to argue that OIC's Cairo declaration on islamic "human rights" (Sharia) could be reconciled with Human Rights. OIC, the world's foremost muslim organization representing 1,5 Billion muslims strongly begs to differ with you, yet you think you know better.
Some other voices on apsotasy in islam
Edward N. Luttwak, writing in New York Times 2008:
As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant.
Of course, as most Americans understand it, Senator Obama is not a Muslim. He chose to become a Christian, and indeed has written convincingly to explain how he arrived at his choice and how important his Christian faith is to him.
His conversion, however, was a crime in Muslim eyes; it is “irtidad” or “ridda,” usually translated from the Arabic as “apostasy,” but with connotations of rebellion and treason. Indeed, it is the worst of all crimes that a Muslim can commit, worse than murder (which the victim’s family may choose to forgive).
With few exceptions, the jurists of all Sunni and Shiite schools prescribe execution for all adults who leave the faith not under duress; the recommended punishment is beheading at the hands of a cleric, although in recent years there have been both stonings and hangings. (Some may point to cases in which lesser punishments were ordered — as with some Egyptian intellectuals who have been punished for writings that were construed as apostasy — but those were really instances of supposed heresy, not explicitly declared apostasy as in Senator Obama’s case.)
It is true that the criminal codes in most Muslim countries do not mandate execution for apostasy (although a law doing exactly that is pending before Iran’s Parliament and in two Malaysian states). But as a practical matter, in very few Islamic countries do the governments have sufficient authority to resist demands for the punishment of apostates at the hands of religious authorities.
For example, in Iran in 1994 the intervention of Pope John Paul II and others won a Christian convert a last-minute reprieve, but the man was abducted and killed shortly after his release. Likewise, in 2006 in Afghanistan, a Christian convert had to be declared insane to prevent his execution, and he was still forced to flee to Italy.
Because no government is likely to allow the prosecution of a President Obama — not even those of Iran and Saudi Arabia, the only two countries where Islamic religious courts dominate over secular law — another provision of Muslim law is perhaps more relevant: it prohibits punishment for any Muslim who kills any apostate, and effectively prohibits interference with such a killing.
Following are excerpts from a statement by Sheik ‘Atiyya Muhammad Sa’id, a member of the Sudanese Islamic Scholars Association, at a rally, which was posted on the Internet on May 5, 2011:
Sheik ‘Atiyya Muhammad Sa’id: May Allah have mercy on Osama Bin Laden. May Allah place him along with the righteous and the martyrs, “on whom there shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” He sought not this world, but the world to come.
Sheik ‘Atiyya Muhammad Sa’id: By Allah, the state of Islam will be established upon the land, whether the infidels like it or not, whether the Jews like it or not, whether that apostate… What’s his name… The one from America… Obama!
Obama is a Muslim who has left the fold of Islam. Hence, Allah, the angels, and all the people curse him. He is a real apostate. Obama is an apostate. Obama is an apostate. He left the fold of Islam…
Crowds: The apostate must be executed.
The apostate must be executed.
The apostate must be executed.
The apostate must be executed.
Sheik ‘Atiyya Muhammad Sa’id: Oh Muslims, oh the youth of Islam, the path of Osama Bin Laden is our path.
Crowds: Allah Akbar.
