Good Reputation?

Today I came across the article at the following link, in which a Sydney mosque claims to have had it’s “good reputation” tarnished – merely because it auctioned a flag associated with the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group.


Note the statement from the mosque:

“We reject any attempts to tarnish the good reputation of our centre and pledge to stand firm against the current wave of Islamophobia. We also believe that scapegoating and fear mongering has the serious potential of radicalising disaffected youth.”.

Maybe if these people were more eager to stand against the so-called “extremists” and their demonic actions there would be less “Islamophobia”.

And it is interesting that the “radicalising of disaffected youth” that leads to the involvement in terrorist activities is being blamed on the rest of society and not on the kind of mosques that would seek to capitalise on the sale of a flag identified with the atrocities currently being committed in Iraq and Syria

  1. Why would they be denying that they auctioned the flag in front of children when they also claim there is nothing inherently wrong with the flag (and thus that concerns over it, on the part of others, are fear mongering)?

  2. They deny it because they clearly have something to hide. Islam is not the most truthful of religions when it comes to interaction with “infidels”.

  3. These people in the story are plainly dishonest. I think lots of people willing to be dishonest lose track of what even makes sense. Or they can’t pass on fair logic to their children. Islam doesn’t have a monopoly on this. But there are cultures and national histories and personal histories very marked by it. Some people aren’t in touch with truth-seeking, while others are most sinister. It’s always incredible to see. Incredible even wile having seen it before.

  4. The article here is interesting:

    Quote from the article:

    Many people call themselves “Christians” but are not be followers of Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth who believe in His death and resurrection for their sins (Isaiah 52:13-53-12). They identify with a more cultural brand of Christianity that is quite removed from the first Century Jewish sect that it used to be. This does not make them to be bad people, but they simply are “Christian” in title or practice only, and certainly not by faith (Ephesians 2:8-9).
    By the same token, many people today would tell you that they are Muslims, yet they would be hard pressed to identify some of the key passages of the Qur’an or the Hadith (teachings of Mohammed not found in the Qur’an). Sure they might keep a Halal diet, pray five times a day and even fast for Ramadan, but they would be the first ones to admit that they do not adhere to the entire Qur’an, especially the verses and passages that advocate hatred, lying and killing of infidels.
