Call them the Harry Potter books on Islam

July 17, 2008, Raymond Ibrahim:

Dinar Standard:
... Saniyasnain Khan says Islam is essentially a religion of peace and harmony but there are two main reasons why some people dislike Muslims and Islam. One is violence that has been associated with it while the other is the perceived bad treatment of women by Muslims.

‘I felt that there was a pressing need to educate the new generation about the real Islamic values so that they become little ambassadors of Islamic goodness and they also stimulate them to learn about Islamic ideals as they grow up,’ said Mr. Khan, whose first book “Tell Me About Hajj” has sold over 30,000 copies.

"Children get a lot of negative information about Islam. There is a big need to give them the right picture so that they grow up to be peace-loving individuals” said Mr. Khan who often contributes articles on spirituality to the Times of India.
Interesting statement. At first, when Khan says that Muslim children “get a lot of negative information about Islam” it seemed that he was indicating the negative “propaganda” surrounding Islam. But the “big need to give them the right picture so that they grow up to be peace-loving individuals” implies that the “negative information” about Islam isn’t what infidels say about it, but how Muslim adults teach it.
A trustee of CPS International, a non-profit organization working towards peace and spirituality, Khan says “my endeavor is to present books for children that provide a solid foundation of Islamic moral values. The basic purpose of these books is to teach themes carefully chosen from the Quran and other Islamic sources so that the children not only learn its ethical values but also embody them in their lives.”
Why all the "care" when choosing themes, Mr. Khan? Why not represent them all? Surely you don't find some of those "themes" problematic?
Now dear Muslim children it's time to play pretends, close your eyes and imagine a place far far away where the Koran has no bad verses, none, it's a magical wonderland. Now open your eyes. So if someone says something bad about Islam you close your eyes and go to that place far far away where no one can criticise you. Don't listen to them, just get on your broomstick and go.

So long as adult Muslims continue to play pretends with the Koran, no Islamic reform will ever happen, and their children will have no defence when the jihadists come knocking.

...Sarko Had Better Bully France’s Thugs

In my previous post I mentioned that 297 cars had burned during the night of July 13-14. Now it seems that another 295 were torched the following night, making a total of 592 cars destroyed – 150 in Ile-de-France (the Parisian region) and 145 in the provinces. In addition, 98 persons were arrested and 58 were placed in custody in all of France. The figures just for Ile-de-France are 48 arrests and 29 in custody.

However the worst crime so far took place in Asnières, in the department of Hauts-de-Seine (Parisian suburbs). TF1 reports:

He may lose an eye. On the night of July 13-14, a police commissioner was injured by a pyrotechnical device during a confrontation between young persons and the police. "The wound is extremely serious," according to a police source.

The commissioner, about 30, was visibly wounded by the ricochet of the pyrotechnical device while violent confrontations between about 50 young persons and the police were taking place in the northern neighborhoods, considered dangerous ["sensibles"], of Asnières. The commissioner received a visit on Monday from Interior Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie.

The socialist mayor of Asnières, Sébastien Pietrasanta, called these confrontations "extremely serious", and spoke of gangs of "well-prepared and hooded" young persons who attacked anyone and anything that represented order and institutions." According to a source at the office of District Attorney ["parquet"] of Nanterre, these were" blatant acts of urban violence, an unprecedented violence, premeditated," that pitted "from 30 to 60 persons" against the forces of order.

The mayor said that the following night had been "calm", but SICP, the union of police commissioners, expressed anger once again at the "regular rise in violence at holiday time," stressing that the use of fireworks and firearms has become "almost systematic" against police forces
